I bought this anthology Dark Horse has published of Creepy, 1 thru 5.
REally nice reproduction on quality paper. Which is kind of a first. Creepy was very much a pulp mag. With the nice cheap newsprint. It's exciting to see Frazetta's Werewolf in high contrast on good white stock.
They are complete recreations of everything published in the mag at the time. Ads, letters.
The first page has an invitation to subscribe for 6 issues. For two dollars!
I added a picture of the main man, Archie Goodwin, who wrote and edited most of those early Creepy stories. Behind him, it looks like Sergio Aragones. And shaking his hand some guy with a bad rug.
I met Goodwin at a Tulsa con back in the early 80s. Really cool guy. We talked about Sergio Leone westerns.
